I spent three glorious days in Ilocos Norte and made the most of my visit by taking lots of pictures!

We were booked at the government-owned Plaza del Norte Hotel and Convention Center which was just 15 minutes away from the airport.

|The pool looked very inviting but this shot doesn’t do it much justice! I did take better pictures the next morning.|
After dinner, we checked into our rooms to rest and freshen up. It was a good thing I brought swimwear–we ended up going for an evening dip. Thankfully, the water temperature was just right.
When I was done swimming, I went around the venue to admire the scenery and take pictures.
|Can you guess what was going through my head when I shot this?|
|THIS SCENE. EXACTLY.|
